Lowestoft Energy Challenge
The Celebration of the Achievements of The Lowestoft Energy Challenge took place at OrbisEnergy, Lowestoft in July
The project launched 18 months ago and the aim was to encourage young people to take action on climate change and look at ways they could save energy in their schools and college.
Students came up with a number of ideas and through the project were given the opportunity to enhance their enterprise skills in research, project management, creativity and behavioural science.
Pupils from Poplars Primary decided on mini wind turbines on the school roof, Lowestoft College students designed a sculpture “SEA” (sourcing energy alternatives) and the Denes High School have entered into a contract to build a wind turbine in the grounds of the School.
The project was supported by NESTA and Make Your Mark and was project managed by Cheryl Willis of Enterprise Lowestoft.

The Sculpture is unveiled by Representatives of NESTA and Make Your Mark and was designed and made by students of Lowestoft College as part of the Lowestoft Energy Challenge.
